Medical malpractice is commonly cited in wrongful death lawsuits when a hospital, doctor, or other medical professional's mistake, prescription error, surgical mistake, failure to diagnose, or failure to properly treat resulted in the loss of life. This type of wrongful death lawsuit can also involve claims of nursing home negligence.
Unfortunately, accidents are also common causes of wrongful deaths. Such accidents include fatal auto accidents, premise injury accidents, truck accidents, and various other types of accidents. If a car accident resulted in the death of your loved one, a wrongful death lawyer can help you bring a lawsuit against the negligent or reckless party.
If a defective drug or medical device or any other consumer product causes death, the manufacturer and other parties in the chain of production and distribution may be held responsible for the consequential damages.
Fatal criminal attacks fall under the area of law known as intentional torts. While a criminal case may be filed to determine punishment for a criminal act of violence, the victim's family may also be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit to seek compensation from the assailant. If a property owner or manager fails to keep a property safe, they too can be culpable in a wrongful death case involving criminal attack.
A statute of limitations limits the amount of time you have to file a lawsuit in the event of a wrongful death accident. Contact Frederic M. Rosen, a wrongful death attorney, to discuss statute of limitations in your particular case.
